New For Teens - New Milford Public Library has entered into a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, to offer free Connecticut DMV practice tests. This new service includes free tests, written specifically based on Connecticut's DMV materials (10 car tests, 5 motorcycle tests, 3 CDL tests and 3 online driver's manuals), and is the only site to include accessibility tools that allow users to hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, and magnify text for greater visibility on driving practice tests.
